I think my favourite way to eat is to have the choice to combine the tastes the way I like it best. A Muesli Board or any king of food boards, as matter of fact, is a way to explore flavours and my mind basically goes into play mode.
Having seen different kinds of food boards lately, I wanted to come up with an idea that combines what the Swiss cuisine is about but that also allows anyone to choose whatever healthy, fresh, local produce they can find. For the first, well besides fondue muesli is the other national dish. For the second, anywhere you live you will surely have access to incredible seasonal and local produce.
Here in Switzerland it’s still a bit early to have much other than pears and apples but with all the other additional ingredients I added, my Muesli Board was still fun to eat. I can’t wait to give this board another try in a couple of months, when all the berries are out.
Quantities for 4 people
- 200 g oats
- 6 dl milk or milk alternative such as almond milk, soy milk… or you can divide the oats and soak half in traditional milk and the other in a vegan alternative
- 1 apple
Additional ingredients – here is where you can let your pantry and desires express themselves.
- Fruits (I used seasonal and local produce) such as apples, pears, berries, bananas, oranges,…
- Dried fruits such as raisins, bananas, physalis, figs,…
- Nuts and seeds such as almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds…
- Yogurt traditional or vegan
- Whipped cream
- Maple syrup
- Dark chocolate chips
The night before serving the muesli board, soak the oats in the milk or its vegan alternative. If the oats are fine you can get away with soaking them for a couple of hours. Peel and coarsely grate the apple, add it to the oats.
Chop the different ingredients and place them on the board alongside the soaked oats.
Time for each to choose how they want to have their muesli.
